Formed in July 2002, Fear Before The March Of Flames have developed a distinctive sound, a head on collision of intricate song structures, shifting time signatures and an overall filthy temper to produce an intense and inventive blend of metal, post hardcore and crunching indie rock. Easy listening this is not. Takes up where At the Drive In, The Blood Brothers and Dillinger Escape Plan leave off and trashes them in the process.
The follow up to "A Second Engine", Time In Malta's excellent debut, sees them adopt a more aggressive and refined approach, with more brutal breakdowns, complex song structures and extended acoustic intros making for a singular hardcore sound. Todd Gullion's distinctive vocals are lower in the mix and are more effective for that, flowing effortlessly into the music. A very impressive, powerful release.
Members of Bane, Dasai and Drowning Man get together to craft a surprisingly subtle, intricate and beautiful album, that still manages to retain the explosive drive of punk. If the brooding, delicate opening bars and soulful, haunting vocals lull you into a false sense of security, it's very quickly, but very delightfully, blown away by a blazing, anguished aural assault...
Taking a short break to compose and work on their second album has done Fairweather no end of good. They've returned with a no-holds-barred emotionally rampaging disc that builds on the stop gap four-track EP "Alaska" and moves into even more dynamic and sophisticated territory. "Lusitania" is an hour long journey filled with tension, hope and the human condition: a breathtaking album that moves emo in a new and positive direction.
This Day Forward will pound you and drag you kicking and screaming into their nightmare dreamscapes of love, hate, regret and fear cocooned in scream soaked deliveries, and racy mood fluctuations. This is heavy with a very big Hurrrr!!. Now on the excellent Equal Vision label they riff, they utilise downer vocals, they're not scared of melodic breakdowns and unexpected tranquil passages it all adds up to something way beyond post hardcore badness.
This debut full length from one of the most important bands in the contemporary hardcore scene. "Background Music"? It's anything but, in fact it's the sort of music that comes right up to you and pokes you in the eye, rips your arm off and clubs you with the bloodied stump. The band changed its name to Give Up The Ghost after the original American Nightmare, a band based outside of Philadelphia, objected to the use of their name and trademark. Wes Eisold has a voice from the primordial slime and Tim Cossar and Brian Masek use their guitars like lethal weapons. Oh boy they're nasty. It's fast-paced, heavy music with throaty vocals and intense, angry lyrics. A blend of traditional hardcore, punk and metal that takes no prisoners and expects no mercy.
Breaking Pangaea's dynamic marriage of soaring guitars and sweeping vocals is reminiscent of New Found Glory and Jets to Brazil or Jimmy Eat World. Toured/touring with Coheed & Cambria, Further Seems Forever, Hey Mercedes and Elliot. Recorded at Big Blue Meenie studios (Thursday, Taking Back Sunday). Dropped enough names there have I?????
Time In Malta could become one of the new gods of riff if the well-crafted, perfect blend of aggression and melody on their debut full length release is anything to go by. This really gets your palms sweating, with elements of stoner, hardcore, metal, punk and emo, this is recommended for fans of such bands as Soundgarden, Boysetsfire, Poison The Well and the Dillinger Escape Plan.
Burn are back and they are more explosive than ever! The new version of the band features the core members from before (Chaka - vocals, Gavin - guitar, Alan - drums) who went on to form Ornage 9mm, Die 116 and Quicksand respectively! With Vic from from Inside Out and Manny from Glassjaw on board the members have blended together to make an awe inspiring release. With "Cleanse", Burn have undergone a hardcore renaissance.
Liar's Academy are a melodic pop / rock / post punk outfit from Baltimore formed during 2000, following the break up of Ryan Shelkett and Evan Tanner's previous band, Cross My Heart. This album is a close companion to Shelkett's band on Deep Elm, Dead Red Sea. Polished, melodic, hook-laden songs that will appeal to emocore fans.
During the five years since the release of their first EP, Bane have grown into the leaders of the new hardcore movement. "Give Blood" is undoubtedly Bane's most commanding and highly anticipated release to date. The album was produced and engineered by Brian McTernan (Cave In, Hot Water Music, Snapcase) and this really is a truly intense experience for the listener.
"Jane Doe" is dangerously heavy, the most devastating release of Converge's long career. They've re-defined and created a new standard for a hardcore / metal band. Converge are one of the leaders of a scene they practically single-handedly created over the last decade and "Jane Doe" is nothing less than one of the heaviest metal / hardcore titles you are ever likely to experience.
Taking no prisoners and pummeling you into a comatose state of submission is Drowningman's speciality. The opening lyric, "Fuck you too!" sets the tone and the invective and anger on display here could make serial killers of us all or act as a cathartic release of tension. You pay your money you make your choice.
